Overview:

I am dedicated and passionate flutist whose goal is to create meaningful musical experiences for audiences and students alike. Music is one of the most important and inspiring things I do everyday and I am grateful to have the opportunity to share it with students from a variety of backgrounds and experiences. I graduated with a Masters degree in Flute Performance from the University of New Mexico and, most recently, served as interim principal flutist for the Queretaro Philharmonic in Mexico. Within my flute studio, I encourage all of my students to use their time to experiment, ask questions, and even make bold musical remarks as a way to explore the depths of musical expression as well as to familiarize themselves with their own concepts about music.

EXPERIENCE

For over 6 years now, I have been teaching flute within different contexts. Some of the most meaningful teaching experiences I have had have taught me about the unique relationship we each have with the art of music. Private lessons have provided an outlet to encourage and guide individuals based on their needs; educational outreach concerts have given me the opportunity to address easy and complex subjects according to the audience in front of me; masterclasses have given me the opportunity to help individuals gain a strong sense of confidence from a foundation of understanding while nurturing the audience's curiosity regarding music; and working as a Teaching Artist with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra has brought all these elements of teaching and learning to a brand new level that has only strengthened my foundation as a teacher. Teaching is something I love because it gives those seeking to grow, learn and understand an opportunity to experience their own potential. There is no greater reward than to witness students recognizing their own potential for themselves!

METHODS USED

For beginning students I typically use Trevor Wye Book for Beginners along with Suzuki Book 1. Once sufficient progress has been made, I move on to the Marcel Moyse tone exercise as well as two octave scales and arpeggios paired with intermediate solo repertoire that focuses on tone development, musical phrasing, and musical style. This is all geared to prepare the student to perform with understanding versus pure technique. For young adults and adults, I work from the goals each want to achieve while also implementing traditional teaching materials that solidify the musical training. Overall, all music, etudes, and techniques used in class is to enable the student to play music from a musical basis as well as from a solid foundation of understanding.

LESSON STYLE

As I mentioned before, there is no greater reward than to witness students recognizing their own potential for themselves! Therefore, all lessons are built around the student's desires, needs, and talent. All individuals have the ability to learn and play an instrument and this is something I strongly believe in. I am a very open minded teacher who encourages "outside of the box" approaches and loves to explore different ideas to gain a full understanding of musical gestures, styles, and mastery.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
